Is That Broken Glass, Or Is That Art? Or Both? (7 pics)

Someone really was pissed with that shop

“Glass is a material that has so much potential in art,” Berger told Bored Panda. “[Using my workmanship experience,] I have found a technique which is probably the most unique in the [entire] world.”

They really messed up its window!

The trained carpenter started his artistic journey using wood but soon began experimenting with other materials as well. At one point, Simon even created a portrait from an upcycled calculation machine.

Wait, is it a shop?

The artist starts a piece with a photo of a model. He then sketches its outlines on a panel of glass. From there, Simon marks the spots he doesn’t want to break and the ones he wants to edit a little. The best glass for these projects is something that doesn’t break immediately after being hit. Like a car’s windshield.

Ah, ok. It’s a gallery!

“Human faces have always fascinated me,” the artist said. “On safety glass, these motifs come into their own and magically attract visitors. It is a discovery from abstract fogging to figurative perception.”

And that’s not vandalism

Recently, Simon’s meticulous work has had a very successful exhibition in Philipp Brogli’s gallery Artstübli in Basel, Switzerland.
